  1. Suspended maid on full pay and a warning to stay off the bus. The gardener is hired by the owner of the house and is still working. I have no contact with him.
  2. I am sorry you felt that my helping my maid because I  can is disrespectful of her.  It was not intended that way.  She is my friend and she needs help.  I had a doctor friend who earned a whole lot more than me but had to have back surgery and needed help with her children.  I flew to where she was and took care of her children.  She was a friend and needed help also.  That doesn't mean I am demeaning either of my friends.

  3. I am still looking for the supplies. Does anyone have any 1/4 or 1/2 inch fabric wired ribbon or 1/4 or 3/8 inch elastic I could have to help our care providers? I am not looking for patterns, I am looking for supplies.
  4. My maid has worked for me for the past nine years and has become a friend. She is very poor and cannot feed her kids without working. She came Friday and I gave her full pay through the end of April and told her to stay off the bus. I am immune suppressed and have no desire to get the virus so I will re-evaluate the situation then. Anyone who thinks this will last five days needs a reality check. I am middle class but, comparatively speaking, I live like a queen. With the exchange rate being what it is, her costs to me are minimal. Let's share the wealth, people. Reach out to those who are in trouble and help them. Businesses are required by law to pay minimum wages to their workers for at least a month. We should do at least that.
  5. I know HOW to make the masks based on a surgeon's experience and the pattern she made. They are washable and reusable. The question was does anyone knows how I can get the supplies to do so? They would be donated to our hospital and doctor's offices to help keep our first responders safe. I need: Supplies: *Tightly woven cotton cut into 9 inch squares ( 2 squares per mask) (1/2 in square plaids would speed up the production time but any tightly woven cotton would work.) 12 inches of 1/4 or 1/2 inch fabric wired ribbon (1 per mask) Version 1: 7 inch strips of 1/4 or 3/8 inch elastic (2 per mask) If some one has these items and would like to donate them, I will make the masks. If someone knows a way for me to get these supplies, again, I will make and distribute them. The time will come when we too will be affected by this virus. Personal protection equipment will be in short supply. These masks are not N95 but they will help protect those who take care of us (including maintenance and hospital kitchen staff, etc.) I am just trying to be proactive contribute to the safety of others.
  6. Joyinmexico, Elegante is offering $300mxn boxed meals but they have to be preordered by phone or online and picked up at the door. Only the chef will be handling the food and he keeps an immaculate kitchen.
  7. You have government contacts.  Could you help me get supplies?

    • I have found a pattern created by a surgeon to make fabric, washable, reusable masks.  I am willing (and would suggest others do so as well) to make masks.  Our first responders and medical people are putting their lives on the line for us and we need to help them if we can.  My problem is that I do not have access to the supplies.  The supplies need to be bought from a fabric store and I doubt if any are presently open.  It might take some government help to get the supplies because the stores are probably closed.  I have no contacts so am requesting that anyone who could help me get these supplies would do so.  If the stores are open and someone could get the supplies for me, I would be grateful as I am immune suppressed and cannot go out.  These masks are not the N95 masks but might help save lives  Please help me if you can.  Thanks.  Jeanne

  9. Can anyone give me a recommendation for a good pet sitter? I have a small dog and two cats. Two of the animals need medications. I live in lower La Floresta. The dates are February 25th through March 2nd. Thanks.
  10. Our house was wired for Ilox when we moved in in September last year. We are still trying to get the modem. I think the only words they know are, "Three more weeks".
